The Jewish Federation of Edmonton
MISSION, VISION, ROLE, AND VALUES
Our Mission: The Jewish Federation of Edmonton mobilizes and develops resources and strengthens relationships in order to provide leadership at home, in Israel, and around the world.
Our Vision: A thriving, caring, engaged, and connected Jewish community.
Our role: The Federation has many roles. Some of the most common ones are: connector, convener, bridge builder, funder, leader, umbrella and community glue. These roles all point to an organization that provides leadership in a variety of ways and environments and empowers others through its influence and its resources.
Our values: Two sets of values guide the Federation’s work—Jewish values and business values. The Jewish values that guide the work of the Jewish Federation of Edmonton include “Yisrael Arevim Zeh l’zeh”—all the people of Israel care for each other; Tikun Olam—repairing the world and Ahavat Chesed—loving kindness. We should care for each other; we should engage in acts of loving kindness and we should care about others and repair the world. The business values include collaboration, accountability, and transparency. Together, these six values lay the foundational underpinnings for the work of the Jewish Federation of Edmonton.
